A very good friend, and band mate from (2007-2017) passed away last night. Back in August of 2019 he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. He went through massive chemo treatments and eventually an 8 hour surgery. Everything looked good after the surgery and the doctors thought that they got it all. Three months ago he went in for a PET scan and the cancer was back and had spread to other parts of his body. He was put in hospice on Tuesday this week. I was going to go see him yesterday morning but his wife said he had taken a turn for the worst and only immediate family could be with him. He passed away around 10 p.m. last night. He was only 40 years old. As I reflect on this Thanksgiving morning, I am thankful to have known him and that he was a part of my life. He leaves behind a wife and four children. R.I.P. Bill Mount...Love you brother.
